Born in Vancouver, BC, & raised in both Vancouver & Tokyo, Kanami grew up floating somewhere in between Japanese & Canadian
She discovered yoga when she was 18 years old, and immediately fell in love. Kanami always knew she would become a yoga teacher, but first she was an outdoor river guide for over 10 years.
During those years she had the incredible opportunity to live, work, and play on rivers all over the world. Through her travels, yoga has always been her base on maintaining strength, grace, flexibility, balance, and focus.
Kanami came to Niseko six winters ago, and started teaching yoga classes, calling it “Powder Yoga”.
Now her winter home, she works hard every winter to share her love for yoga & the outdoors with as many visitors to Niseko as possible.
